Mishi is a mother of four children who are all in school. She is married to a business man and they live in a rental house that has electricity but no piped water.
For the last six years, Mishi has been operating a shop selling foodstuff to her neighbors. High transport cost and theft of goods are her major challenges. She dreams of expanding the shop to a wholesale business and hire employees.
Mishi joined Yehu because of their good products. Other sources of her family's livelihood include earnings from her spouse. With this loan of KSH 50,000, she will be able to purchase bales of wheat flour, maize flour, rice and sugar to resell.
